The Caleb Pusey House, built in 1683, is the second oldest English house in Pennsylvania open to the public (Wall House in Cheltenham Township is the oldest). Built in a vernacular English yeoman’s style, it is the only remaining house where William Penn is known to have visited. It stands on the 100 acres (0.40 km2) near Chester Creek which Penn granted Pusey, a plantation which the latter named “Landing Ford”. It is located in what is now Upland, near Chester. Since the 1950s, the building and grounds have been owned by the Friends of the Caleb Pusey House, Inc. The house was restored and the property is operated as a historic house museum.
